This month’s GlobeIn theme is Spring Clean, and I couldn’t be happier about it. I love new seasons, a fresh start, clean houses, and purging old items. All of these things align perfectly with the theme, so I know I am going to love every single item in the box.
Hanging Wall Organizer, Peru ($30) – I’m a bit of a freak when it comes to organizing. If I could organize all day, every day, I would. This pretty little wall organizer can be used for kitchen gadgets, gardening tools, toiletries or office supplies. I’m not sure where I am going to use it yet, only because I want to use it for all of those things…..I want one for every room.
Kitchen Towel, Turkey ($12) – I absolutely love Turkish towels, I think they are so beautiful. This is a welcome addition to my kitchen towel drawer……..but just like the previous item, I wish I had a few more.
Organic Dish Cloths, India ($10) – My Grandma use to make cloths just like this, and they were, and always will be, my favourite kind of cloth to use. I am SO glad they sent 2 of them.
Fair Trade Surface Cleaner, Ghana/India ($5) – I always have at least one bottle of multi-purpose cleaner on hand. I love anything that multi-tasks. And the fact that this one is made with natural ingredients makes me love it even more. It is a blend of palm and coconut oil. Is there anything that coconut oil doesn’t do??
Upcycled Container, Cambodia ($10) – This nifty little container takes the place of the leaf basket we usually receive each month. This will be perfect to store cleaning products in. That’s actually a really great idea for all of the baskets I have received from GlobeIn. I could have one under each sink, filled with cleaning products, so I can scrub toilets on a whim.
Thoughts: I had trouble writing this month’s GlobeIn review. It actually took me a couple hours longer than it normally does because I kept getting sidetracked. The items we received this month made me want to start Spring cleaning immediately…..so I did…….and the review got put on hold. This month’s theme is genius, and I would love to see more subscription boxes adopting a similar theme for their Spring boxes. I honestly can’t wait to see what they come up with for the May box.
